October 1-15, 2019

A challenging start of the month for Ecuadorians, but more happened...

The first half of October 2019 was characterized by the 12-day strike in Ecuador's capital Quito, which many would rather put in the past. But more happened this month like, Van Vugt Kruiden in the Netherlands opened a new building, Dümmen Orange appointed a new CEO, and an alliance deal was closed between Hortiflorexpo IPM Beijing and Hortex Vietnam. And when talking about exhibitions, three exhibitions took place at the beginning of this month; the Proflora, Expoplantas and Canadian Greenhouse Conference.
